Each one has its own pluses and minuses. Gluing the tracks in is probably the cheapest and quickest way to get that perfect black hair weave! You can do it yourself which really cuts down on the costs involved. The glue if applied to the track and placed either on your hair, or to a wig cap.

If you want to sew in hair weave, you can cornrow your natural hair and sew in the tracks to the braids or you could also do what is called a net weave. With this technique you have a braid that goes around your head and serves as a foundation braid for the net to be sewn into. After the net is in place, the tracks are applied to the net.
